读医的这几年里,由于繁重的课业,考试的压力,还有想到需要没日没夜地工作,都一度想要放弃。但是,无语良师计划,让我重新认识了医学。 

参与无语良师工作坊的全过程,因为需要了解无语老师,所以让我们有了恻隐之心;因为与家属们沟通,让我们有了情感牵绊;而正是这样的感受,唤起了我们的同理心与爱心,提醒我们小心对待每一位患者。 

志工们与医学教授们,更是通过他们的热忱,感染了我们,让我们觉得医学虽难,但我们依然有他们相伴,有了坚持下去的勇气。 

这些情感与热血是没办法通过努力读书而收获到的。因此,非常感谢慈济与马大医学院提供了这么一个平台,让我们以不一样的方式学习如何成为真正的医者。

The Silent Mentor Program is something I could never have foreseen myself to be a part of it. During the 30th Silent Mentor Workshop, I was given the golden opportunity to be a participant of the workshop among many of my other colleagues, despite the limited opportunities and slots. Like many others, I joined this workshop in hopes of sharpening my clinical skills and obtain the experience of performing procedures on human beings, too.  

Little did I know, there was so much more to learn and reflect on from our Silent Mentors than what meets the eye, which was unique to the Silent Mentor Program and could not have been learnt elsewhere. With this program, we got to backtrack and learn about the mentors' lives through stories and pictures from their family members. We were able to build a deeper connection with our mentors despite them having left us for the next phase of their lives.  

We cleansed and prepared our mentors daily, which reminded me of when I had to care for my own bedridden grandparents and that only instilled a deep longing in me to be gentler and kinder to my mentor. Seeing our mentors being used and watching their bodies break down slowly each day broke my heart and drove me to appreciate their sacrifice for us as students further and reminded me not to forsake this golden opportunity.  

I am grateful to have been gifted the opportunity to be a part of this workshop, and the lessons I have learnt throughout this one week are lessons that I will carry in me for a lifetime.

感恩这次的无语良师工作坊,能让我跟昌伟老师与家人们结缘。虽然不曾与昌伟老师见过任何一面,但庆幸的是我能通过家访,从姐姐们的口中认识和蔼可亲的昌伟老师。在工作坊中,我们替老师清洗身体的每一天、在老师身上练习的每一针每一刀,老师仿佛就在一旁默默的提醒我们:记得以后要小心地对待每一名病人,从现在的错误中学习,以后千万千万别犯错呀! 

曾经的我只是一名小小的志工,看着前辈们一个个满怀期待的参与工作坊、满怀不舍的目送老师们离去。我不明白为什么大家都那么伤感。而现在的我,终于明白了。 

是老师们的无私奉献,是家人们的无私支持,是志工们的无私付出,才成就了这圆满的无语良师工作坊。老师,我会将您对我们的期待铭记于心,以后尽力地成为医心医病的仁医!

Since my second year as a medical student in University of Malaya, I have been volunteering in the Silent Mentor Program. I always thought I already knew and had an idea of how touching the program was. I also thought that through the program, a few of my colleagues and I would have a Silent Mentor who we would take care throughout the one week of the Silent Mentor workshop and we would also be given the chance to do medical procedures on our Silent Mentor and learn from them. 

However, after becoming a participant in the 30th Silent Mentor Workshop, I realized how wrong I was to think so simply about it. When I compare my experience as a volunteer and as a participant, there are not enough words to describe how much of a touching experience it was. From the moment we had our family visit, I realized that my Silent Mentor was more than just someone who passed away and donated her body for the program, she was someone who had lived a long life and had left an impact on many people. The words that she left for us medical students were incredibly touching and made me remember again why I chose to pursue this career path. 

Throughout this one week workshop, I was given the chance to learn many medical procedures and have a hands on experience which is something that I could not have had if my Silent Mentor, Madam Tan Lan Chern had not been so kind and selfless even after her death. Even more than that, I also learnt to be more caring when taking care of patients in the future as I took care of my Silent Mentor together with my colleagues. Cleaning her every morning and every night made me respect her decision even more. I am also incredibly grateful towards her family members who supported her decision as it most definitely was not an easy decision to make. 

On the last day of the workshop, during the sending off ceremony, there were so many times when I teared up and came close to crying as I watched all the touching tributes of every team towards their respective Silent Mentors. I will always be thankful that I was given the chance to join this workshop as it was an experience that I will never forget and Madam Tan Lan Chern’s kindness will always be engraved in my heart. I also admire and am grateful to all the volunteers who made this workshop happen and run smoothly.

In life, the body is something we use to accomplish many things, but we ultimately do not possess it, as it is not permanant. Birth, aging, illness and eventually death - this is the natural course of life and there is only so much that medicine can do when life has reached its end. 

But, what should we do with our body after our death? If we understand that the body is not permanent, we can do something meaningful out of our lives, such as donating it for medical research and education as Silent Mentor.

~  Grateful to the dedication of silent mentors  ~

 

人對於自己的軀體,只有使用權,沒有所有權。人生無常,生、老、病、死不可避免,面對大自然法則,醫療總有極限。

生命無法預知長短,然而自我能夠拓寬生命的價值,讓生命更有深度;身體健康時,以信、願、行付出;當生命結束時,將身體奉獻給醫學教育。大體捐贈的行動,人人都能做得到,只在於『捨』的一念愛心。

~ 感恩無語良師的奉獻 ~
